Arrow, a 5 year old German Shepherd male. He is a BIG boy but oh so gentle with people. He has lots of energy & needs to be reminded once in awhile to mind his manners but he tries very hard to be a good boy
(Arrow may not live in the city of Alton because his owners let him run at large and he killed a 4 lb Yorkie. We still do not know if he meant to as the dog had no bite marks but it is what it is)
He will need to be an only dog and he will only be allowed to go home with an experienced dog handler. He cannot ever be allowed to roam at large again.
Jack is a very sweet 8 year old Blue Heeler Mix. He has epileptic seizures, usually triggered by stress but are being well controlled with medication. He would do best in a home with no small children.
Malu is a beautiful 4 year old Blue Pitt Mix. She was left behind when her family moved and came in malnourished, hairless and covered in skin sores from lack of care. She is a very pretty and healthy girl now and she LOVES people, LOVES them all. But due to lack of socialization as a puppy she does not do well with other dogs or cats. She would love to have all the attention she can get, belly rubs, walks, car rides, you name it as long as she is with her person she is happy.

She is a little shy so she might be best with older children only. She loves to play with other active dogs but would be too much for other dogs that are less active.
Sanford - 3 year old American Staffordshire terrier. He is deaf but don't let that fool you he isn't hard to manage at all as he only wants to please you. He is GREAT with other dogs and house trained. He does great with people too but because of his deafness, he is easily surprised so he would do best in a home with no small children.
